Bio and Links
I love the stories and the hunt in doing genealogy. I am researching my direct line surnames of

"We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe."

Thank you to all the photo volunteers out there! You make the world a more wonderful place by sharing your time, talent and energy for others.

Hi Michelle,
Glad I could help!

RE: photo request Edward Wendel 1840-1917
Assumption Cemetery has no record for THIS Edward Wendel but FWIW I did find a marker for an Edward L Wendel 1905-1984 next to John J Jr. & Julia Wendel.

You're welcome. You have my permission to post Justina's stone wherever you like. She's not family.

RE: obituaries
Thanks for removing it. It was definately mine. I had posted it to my 2 memorials during the summer and deleted both memorials. Everything was exact in the 2 photos right down to the leaves. Here is the rules for pictures from the find a grave rules and regulations:

General Rules:
ONLY post photos for which YOU hold the copyright (meaning photos you took)!!!
The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter.

This clearly states that you cannot take pictures from find-a-grave and post them ANYWHERE online without permission.
I don't want that picture put back on, that's why I removed it. You can always request it and let another get it for you.

I appreciate you removing them.

RE: obituaries
I never meant to hurt you. I'm sorry if I did. I wasn't withholding information. I feel the information that I find is mine to do what I want with. I intend on posting all my info once my family gets it. The thing that had me upset is that I took that picture. I own the copyright to it. You took it and posted it on your memorial as if you were the one who took it. I have no problem at all with you using my pictures for your personal tree but as I mentioned before and a few months ago, I do not want my family pictures posted on the internet by someone else. I own the copyright to it. I see that you didn't remove them. PLEASE remove them as I didn't give my permission for you to post them. I am in no way trying to be mean and I know I sound nasty. I just feel that this was really wrong.

RE: obituaries
The obituaries are fine, I appreciate that. But I sent you a message a few days ago to ask you to remove the gravestone pictures on William and Anna McDonald memorials through a correction. I took that picture. I removed it from my memorial as I want my family to get my pictures before I post them. I would appreciate if you would remove it and I don't give permission for this or any others that I took to be posted on Ancestry or any other site. If you scroll through your messages you will see that we discussed this before. Check with me first and I'll let you know if I'm related, if not, they will be ok to post. Thanks.

RE: Joseph Stab Jr.

I already have the death certificate and death notice from the newspaper. I normally don't post Death Certificates on any site I manage.

Appreciate you letting me know though.
